What would you say is the most challenging step in planning your career? Is it writing a resume that showcases your skills? Is it the interview process? Or maybe trying to figure out which role best aligns with your values? Or is it developing relationships in the workplace?

The hardest part is trying to fool the automated system that checks all the resumes and passes on the valid ones to the recruiter.

Over half the time when you submit a resume, no actual human will even see it. The system auto sorts / filters them out and passes along only the strong candidates for human review.

If someone posts a job and 2,000 people apply for it, an actual recruiter is not looking at 2000 resumes, the system is and may pass along 10,20,40 of them for consideration

The challenge is beating the robot and actually making it to a human - you can do this by ensuring your resume has multiple relevant / key words that are found in the job posting itself

Guy who very very vaguely resembles Tom Hanks insists he isn't. Then I keep insisting he is.

This is a fun way to pass time during layovers.

Base: 180K

Market: Bay Area

I feel like the base is quite low, and lower than the base salary range that I communicated to the recruiter. I'd like to counter to 195K and hope they'll meet me at 190K at least. Is that reasonable and any tips for what I can use as negotiation leverage, since I don't have another job offer at the moment?
